10 things I love about Norway
1. The fantastic nature
As a nature lover – nature in Norway is worth the visit. The beautiful hike and landscape. I was very lucky to work as an airhostess in Norway which made me see nearly all of Norway. I was blown away by the crystal blue water in the north, the northern light and the fantastic mountains. Places to look up for hikes – priekestolen & Trolletunga.
2. Celebration of 17th May
In Norway, they celebrate their national day very big. 17th May. As this is not common in Sweden at all – this was very inspiring. They wear beautiful national costumes, eat nice food and cake and sing. It is nice to see how the whole country just go out and celebrates this day. It is a lot of fun and a great day!
3. The work opportunities are many!
I got the feeling that it is appreciated that people come to work here. There is many option where people work offshore, 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off and seasonal work is common.
4. Norway is very cozy
Norway is my little Scandinavian paradise. The whole vibe is very friendly and cozy in my opinion. It is calm, peaceful and comfortable.
5. Sporty people everywhere…
People hike, go skiing and are very active. It might be part of their culture and I really like that so many people are sporty in Norway. An after-work can be an after-job hike. Isn´t that amazing?
6. The Norwegian Language
Norwegian is a very adorable language. Norwegians speak so cute – it is easy to fall in love with the cute language – it is hard to believe someone can be angry in Norway – but of course, everyone can.
7. High living standard in general
Good health, long life, education and a decent standard of living are attributes that are important in the Nordics. Norway is number 1 on the list.
8. Amazing Stavanger!
I guess it is on my top list of Norwegian cities. They have this beautiful long white beach called Sola Strand and as a beach lover, I was very surprised to see this in Norway. You can also surf here!
I always felt people are generous here. I had a job where I got food at work – I believe that is very unique.
10. Tromsö in the wintertime
For me, this is the most amazing winter city I have been to so far. They have many unique winter activities and the whole city says Christmas. If Santa lives anywhere it must be here. Here you can sleep under the northern light, and try dog sled or snowmobiling.
